I am completely new to these fine musicians. I remember Stereophile raving about Richard's "The Old Kit Bag" but I was not prepared for such a finely crafted, near perfect pop/rock/folk (?) recording. The sonics are stellar, even the Red Book sounds good. Guitar and vocals are superbly recorded and there is just some great songs on this album about the couple's breakup. I highly recommend this if you like guitar music at all or are a fan of these two superb musician's. I am left wondering "where have I been?"...and "why are these guys not better known?"
